Challenge #58 CAS (Clean and Simple)

Welcome to our 58th Challenge here at Aurora Wings with the new theme of CAS.

We define Clean and Simple as projects with one main focal point, limited layers, a large amount of "white" or "open" space (that need not be white, but could instead be colored card stock, one layer of patterned paper, or inked, embossed or stenciled backgrounds that are uncluttered), few or no embellishments and quick and easy to create.

Please don't forget our rules:

No Back Linking
Must be a finished project with a hand colored image following the set theme
ONE ENTRY LIMIT if using an image other than Aurora Wings
THREE ENTRY LIMIT if ALL are Aurora Wings images
Link to specific post, not entire Blog
Link back to Aurora Wings Challenge
You may link to as many other challenges as you like

Our prizes THIS month will include:

1 (one) Artist's Choice Award Winner to be selected from entries using Aurora Wings digis ($20 GC and Badge)

1 (one)  Random Winner ($20 GC)

TOP 3 Winners to be chosen by the DT ($10 GC and Badge)

Entries posted prior to October 2nd will be deleted. All entries must have a hand colored digital or rubber stamp on their completed project to be eligible. Please follow the chosen theme.  You may enter your project in as many other challenges as desired. Please link to your POST address, NOT your BLOG address and link back to the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog. We would greatly appreciate you removing word verification and switching to comment moderation if you fear spam. In fairness to all, those not following the rules will be deleted. Thank you for your understanding and please have fun. We look forward to your fabulous creations.

Also, because of the difficulties we have experienced with Facebook entries, I regret that we will no longer be accepting them on the Challenge Blog.  Thank you for your understanding.  Feel free, however, to enter your Blog challenge entries in the AW FB Group contest if the theme fits there as well.

If you do not have a blog and would still like to enter this challenge,  please email me at donnamundinger(at)gmail(dot)com with your name, a picture of your entry and Aurora Wings Challenge #58 in the subject line, and I will add it to our Aurora Wings Submissions Blog, where it can be viewed and commented on, and to the Linky so you can participate here. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
